I realise that this is a very old thread but the update info shows v3.0.8 was released on 1st Feb 2018. I've just tested Bat_To_Exe_Converter_(x64).exe, i.e. the 64-bit portable exe of v3.0.8. I used a 2-line BAT:

echo This is a test
pause

I compiled this, together with an icon, and submitted the result to VirusTotal. I'm disconcerted to see a score of 21/66 (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/5ac7112fae2a252a5faa72199587cea903d97194cea45934df4fd1fecc326af3/analysis/1518532866/) and thought I would share this. Whilst I was expecting a few false positives (especially from less well-known AV products), 21 red flags out of 66 seems high. Does anyone have any recommendations for a different product? I'm retired and rarely need this so hoping for both freeware and portable.

RickC: You're right to look at high VirusTotal ratios as you did, but I have tested this program many times over the years without issue. As noted earlier in the comments, programs like this will always show up on scanners.

Interesting enough - when you visit the homepage and try to download the program, the button doesn't work, it's kind of greyed out (observation as of today, 21. Feb. 2018). Disabling all blockers doesn't help. The direct download link in this entry works however.

Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.
